Cape Wools' Merino indicator continues falling

Nov '08
With the business climate expected to remain tough during the weeks before the Christmas recess, it was no surprise to see a further decline in the market with with Cape Wools' Merino indicator softening by 3.4% to close at R42.64 per kg (clean).

However, with the strengthening of the rand by 6% against the US dollar and 5% against the euro compared with last week's sale, this decline was relatively mild.

lthough orders for wool are reportedly still slow to come in, a satisfactorily sales percentage was achieved when 93% of the 9868 bales on offer was cleared to the trade.

Major buyers were Chargeurs Wool (2261 bales); Standard Wool 1779 bales); Modiano (1645 bales) and Segard Masurel (1543 bales).

Prices of long Merino fleeces of AWEX types 4 and 5 were generally softer across the full micron range, with the finer qualities posting relatively larger declines compared with the medium qualities.

Approximately 9500 bales will come under the hammer at next week's sale.
